So what’s to worry about? Plenty, apparently, as a dietitian warns of a lack of grains leading to an “unbalanced” diet. It’s unclear what “unbalanced” means, as it has no scientific definition. But it probably refers to a diet that does not match the dietitian’s dietary beliefs.
Scientifically or evolutionarily there’s no clear need for grains in the diet.
As a sidenote we give our two daughters – 1 and 4 years old – a very similar start in life, with similar foods and some breastfeeding for almost two years. The kids are almost never sick, apart from the occasional cold with very mild symptoms.
I can’t even remember when the oldest daughter had a real fever last time, must be more than a year ago. And the youngest, well I don’t think she’s ever had a high fever.
